SUGAR GROVE – Waubonsee Community College will host a workshop on how to prevent osteoporosis from 1:30 to 2:30 p.m. on May 13 in Erickson Hall, Room 213 on the main campus.
The free workshop will introduce participants to yoga and weight-bearing exercises to help build strong bones. They will also learn how to prevent falls and fractures by improving strength, flexibility and balance.
According to a news release, 55% of people over age 50 have low bone density, which puts them at greater risk for hip fractures.
